OpenReadCompletedEventHandler Delegate


Represents the method that will handle the OpenReadCompleted event of a WebClient.

Namespace:   System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public delegate void OpenReadCompletedEventHandler(
	object sender,
	OpenReadCompletedEventArgs e


Type: System.Object

The source of the event.

Type: System.Net.OpenReadCompletedEventArgs

A OpenReadCompletedEventArgs containing event data.

When you create a OpenReadCompletedEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate.

The following code example demonstrates downloading a resource for reading.

public static void OpenResourceForReading2 (string address)
    WebClient client = new WebClient ();
    Uri uri = new Uri(address);

    client.OpenReadCompleted += new OpenReadCompletedEventHandler(OpenReadCallback2);
    client.OpenReadAsync (uri);

The following method is called when the download completes.

private static void OpenReadCallback2 (Object sender, OpenReadCompletedEventArgs e)
    Stream reply = null;
    StreamReader s = null;

        reply = (Stream)e.Result;
        s = new StreamReader (reply);
        Console.WriteLine (s.ReadToEnd ());
        if (s != null)
            s.Close ();

        if (reply != null)
            reply.Close ();
